This dresser was a score! I found it at value village for 9$.... it needed love for sure but who wouldn’t attempt to at that price ?! my vision for this was my usual safe zone, white and brown wood. BUT thankfully country chic paint sent me a can of lazy linen to try on a piece of mine, so I thought I’d give it a shot! I’d love to hear what you think. I’d love the support and feedback also on my Instagram! So give me a follow, and comment on my post 3 thumbs up!
I love the mid century home decor, but I have always been more of a rustic farmhouse girl myself. So this mid century dresser got a rustic up cycle!
This beauty took some work to get to this point.
Take a gander at this bondo patch job on some very rough finished wood. This stuff works amazing! And sands down to butter 🧈 unfortunately it’s smelly so gotta do it outside.
These legs were made pretty with some varathane special walnut stain!
Any light colour will take probably a good 3-4 coats of paint and 1 coat of primer.
1. sand and prime - dewalt orbital sander with 80 grit
2. bondo patch job
3. sand some more, for the bondo use a bondo specific 330 grit sand sponge
4. prime with country chic primer, drawers and frame.
5. coat x3-4 times, sand in between coats for extra smooth finish.
6. strip the 3 middle drawers
7. stain with varathane sun bleached ! - turns to a grey ish colour
8. coat with country chics top coat and foam sponge. Or foam brush!
9. stage to beautify!!
